Precalculus is adaptable and designed to fit the needs of a variety of precalculus courses. It is a comprehensive text that covers more ground than a typical one- or two-semester college-level precalculus course. The content is organized by clearly-defined learning objectives, and includes worked examples that demonstrate problem-solving approaches in an accessible way. Coverage and Scope Precalculus contains twelve chapters, roughly divided into three groups. Chapters 1-4 discuss various types of functions, providing a foundation for the remainder of the course. Chapter 1: Functions Chapter 2: Linear Functions Chapter 3: Polynomial and Rational Functions Chapter 4: Exponential and Logarithmic Functions Chapters 5-8 focus on Trigonometry. In Precalculus, we approach trigonometry by first introducing angles and the unit circle, as opposed to the right triangle approach more commonly used in College Algebra and Trigonometry courses. Chapter 5: Trigonometric Functions Chapter 6: Periodic Functions Chapter 7: Trigonometric Identities and Equations Chapter 8: Further Applications of Trigonometry Chapters 9-12 present some advanced Precalculus topics that build on topics introduced in chapters 1-8. Most Precalculus syllabi include some of the topics in these chapters, but few include all. Instructors can select material as needed from this group of chapters, since they are not cumulative. Chapter 9: Systems of Equations and Inequalities Chapter 10: Analytic Geometry Chapter 11: Sequences, Probability and Counting Theory Chapter 12: Introduction to Calculus

This is the PreCalculus II including trigonometry, which is the continuation of Pre-Calculus I. The eBook has won the Nevada State Regents' Creative Activities Award on March 2, 2018. The award, established in 1993 by the Nevada State Regents, recognizes significant accomplishments which bring recognition, as well as national and international stature, to the Nevada System of Higher Education. The eBook is designed as a textbook. It is very good for teachers to use as a presentation tool as well. The eBook is very suit to home schooling or self learning as a workbook. Dummies may understand the mathematics through the digital media. The eBook has eight greatest features: 1. Dynamic Links: Readers can navigate the eBook in a very convenient way. By a simple click, the eBook can bring readers to a designated page from the table of contents, index or the cross reference on a page. 2. Video Lectures: The entire eBook content is explained by video lectures. Readers may trigger the video lectures by either clicking on QR code, which is located beside the related content, or by scanning the QR code with their cell phone. The video explanations will show up on the web browser or on their cell phone. 3. Animation: Sketching graphs is presented step by step. For a given function, the eBook shows how a function value is produced for a given independent variable value. With the dotted line pointing to the corresponding point from the calculated xy values, readers can see how one can connect these points smoothly to get the function graph. 4. Toggling Graphs or Texts: Based on needs, readers may determine which context, graph to show up or which context or graph to hide. Teachers can use the eBook to do the presentation. Students can easily understand the book content. Again, readers can always get the assistance from the video explanation by scanning the QR code. 5. Interactive Graphs: Based on the parameters input by readers, the desired different graphs can be produced. 6. Automatic Graded Quizzes: After readers input their answers or make their choice for a given question, readers may see the correct answers for each question. 7. Interactive Tables: Based on readers' needs, a table can be sorted on each column. By doing so, it is very easy to find a maximum, minimum or median value. 8. Other Features: For the important concepts or terminologies, a pop up page will show up. To completely see the features, a Adobe Reader is required.

A series of easy-to-follow lessons are designed for self-teaching and rapid learning to help students learn precalculus the easy way. Barron's Precalculus: The Easy Way features a generous number of step-by-step demonstration examples as well as numerous tables, graphs, and graphing-calculator-based approaches. Major topics covered include: algebraic methods; functions and their graphs; complex numbers; polynomial and rational functions; exponential and logarithmic functions; trigonometry and polar coordinates; counting and probability; binomial theorem; calculus preview; and much more. The topic organization and simple lesson format break down the subject matter into manageable learning modules that will help organize study time. Each chapter ends with a comprehensive set of practice exercises designed to reinforce and extend key skills and concepts. These checkup exercises, together with the answers or solution hints included at the back of the book, will help assess understanding and monitor progress. The final chapter of the book offers a brief introduction to the basic tools of calculus. This chapter will help the reader better appreciate the nature of calculus while giving a considerable head start for those moving forward in this field of mathematics. Visual references including charts, graphs, diagrams, instructive illustrations, and icons help engage students and reinforce important concepts.

Engineers looking for an accessible approach to calculus will appreciate Young’s introduction. The book offers a clear writing style that helps reduce any math anxiety they may have while developing their problem-solving skills. It incorporates Parallel Words and Math boxes that provide detailed annotations which follow a multi-modal approach. Your Turn exercises reinforce concepts by allowing them to see the connection between the exercises and examples. A five-step problem solving method is also used to help engineers gain a stronger understanding of word problems.
